Default Hip-Hop Music Thread

Since the Notrious B.I.G. thread was getting a little off topic at the Blu Ray Release Forum. I wanted to start this thread about hip hop music. You can talk about todays artist all the way back to the legends of the game. Who is the G.O.A.T. of all time? We can discuss it here

Hip-Hop these days, for the most part, is crap. All you need is one good phrase/hook, put a decent beat to it, and then BAM instant success.

Here's my favorite MCs/Groups
Mos Def
Talib Kweli
Black Thought
Del the Funky Homosapien
Camp Lo
LL Cool J
Method Man
Gang Starr
Jurassic 5

Relapse is good. Not as good as Marshal Mather's LP but good.

Some good decent releases:

Kero One
Abstract Rude
Aster Roth

I agree. I usually end up listening to older albums from the 90's since I can't stand pop stations playing what they call "hip-hop".

Only new album I like to listen, is Q-Tip's Renaissance. IMHO, it's one of my favorites.

You know Talib and Hi-Tek have their reunion this year right?

Red and Meth have Blackout 2 coming.

Saigon will be crazy. Detox may come out. It's like the Duke Nuken Forever of albums.

Funny you mention that. I just got it and I'm about to listen to it now

Can you imagine someone like Soulja Boy trying to battle dudes like Talib? No contest, Talib would destroy Soulja boy

Yes, that's why I said for the most part. If anything, what we all know as hip-hop does not get any radio play. It's been corrupted by the "club" hip-hop

Saigon, Greatest Story Never Told. Will be great.

Lookup the video for Pain in my Life on Youtube.

Then look up the album All In A Dayz Work. He made an album from start to finish, and released it, in 24 hours.

damn clubs, this statement is funny because it can be applied to almost every music genre now no matter what you listen too. I feel the same way about what RADIO and MTV etc... call punk these days. Although club mixes have not affected that genre as much as hip hop

Yup, and now for rock/alternative/etc. you hear these days instead of clubs, it seems like they make the music for those mall stores (AM eagle/Abercrombie/etc.)

There's nothing wrong with "club" rap. It serves it's purpose. Make them booties shake. I don't mind it when I go out and drink.

That's true. I don't mind it either when going out every once in a while. However, I don't play that type of music in my ipod or in my car.
